Majority of the website is adolescent children who can't vote, and definitely don't have the cash for donating to the candidates/causes they want to support.
The few adults here that do, well, many of them don't vote, and well. Zero donate cash. Sure, maybe "no one" is inaccurate, but a tiny minority are the only portion that are. So really, again, this forum and it's discussions are largely irrelevant.
It is true that most people here can not vote. However most young people here do work and have jobs and probably want to see some sort of change. Which is something I have yet to see the Occupy movement do except just protest against Wall Street. I'm still not entirely sure what they do want or how they want to go and accomplish this.
Also it is always important to get young people into politics because if they're misinformed at that young adult age then who knows where their vote will be cast. So telling young people "your opinion doesn't matter because you can't vote" is although true, but it is a cruel thing to say because I believe that our youth's opinions do matter, when it is well informed.
Also if this forums discussions are irrelevant, then why are you here? No that's not an insult it is a basic question, if you find this all irrelevant and not noteworthy then why are you here then?
